In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Maybe the Reason

Pelosi is old-school Democrat. She follows the narrative demanded by those that pull her strings and grease her palms. That's why I think this whole impeachment debacle continues. The party knows it will have little chance in winning the presidency, the new kids on the block might muddy the water, Biden is their choice, and the impeachment removes some of the troublemakers running for President from campaigning at a very important time. They might not get the presidency, but those that can ruin their country club will never become members.

Writing Will Be Tough

After a short argument with a half inch drill motor last week, I was forced to admit youth and enthusiasm will now need to be replaced with age a wisdom. That and learning how to do many things with my left hand. The doctor thinks the cast can be removed in about four weeks. Then again, I do have a diamond blade for my Dremel, if the cast becomes unbearable.

Where Does it End?

Texas has some new laws. These laws, like all laws, will eventually have unintended consequences. The worst consequence is that all laws create another layer of bureaucracy, a need for more tax money, and further avoidance of the fact all government entities are filled with incompetent people. Regardless of the initial intent, private citizens are harmed in some way.

Where does this end? If I had to guess, it's when a government entity either goes bankrupt, or steals private property from the citizens it'a supposed to serve. Neither is acceptable, but the majority of people don't realize their wealth, and well-being, is under constant threat by those they allow to consume their wealth. The power to stop an unchecked government is always within the grasp of its citizens, but they only become involved when their concerted efforts are too late to prevent disaster. The lone individuals that try to change things things suffer from tyrannical people in authority.

Why is it always this way? Humans are basically selfish, willing to allow others to suffer, and foolishly lured into comfort, instead of liberty. It's a huge fault, and tyrants prey on this with impunity. They make the laws, exclude themselves from these laws, and crush those that stand in their way.

Another Christmas

I've been introspective this season. Time dwindled my family down to me, and one sibling. Memories of the past have been many, and like important  papers scattered by the wind, some are lost, and some are treasured.

Merry Christmas to all that visit. Christmas is the time where even great wars were stopped to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Slippery Slope

This impeachment effort could have some terrible effects; especially for the Democrats. Making the process a frivolous effort to change the results of an election could mean a Republican house majority deciding to impeach all federal judges appointed by a Democrat simply because they don't think Democrats have the capability of making such important choices. That, and anyone - including a President - they think is unqualified.

I think McConnell should throw the articles of impeachment out, since their is no proof of a criminal act. He has the power, and should make an effort to save taxpayer's money.
